I had a cold…

…and it didn’t so much help my poor voice as it made it sound just a touch closer to the voice that ought to be singing this song, with a proper country fiddle in the background, and maybe a little guitar. I wrote it ages ago, and even posted the lyrics on the blog way back when. My brother is largely responsible for the current melody, which I quite like.

Once again: Misfits was the last film for both Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe. Both were getting old for their personas, and both showed the wear of years. In the film, there is a scene in which both Gable and Monroe attempt to rope a horse in the desert. This song was inspired by that scene.

If anybody out there knows anybody who could do this right (ahem Luke Halpin & Friends), please let me know.

Remember, it’s not the singer, it’s the song.

    Sting, just saying

    Well done – and the black and white is a great touch!
